    dreaded xbox error.................. bloody ups are a pain

    my beloved xbox got the 3 red rings yesterday (im absoloutely annoyed), i sign onto xbox site and order a repair ... and get sent a ups delivery notice (to print off)

    now i need to box it up ands send it off but ups don't collect from personal addresses grrrr

    i now have to find a way to get to the nearest one (25 miles)

    Everyone I know who has sent it back (inc myself) has been picked up from home ?

    I printed the sticker off, and stuck it to the box of the packed up Xbox. Rang UPS to sort out collection, and it was delivered back in 10 days

    Same here.

    Ring them and tell them (I had to ring them to pick it up though).

    collected from my home 3 times now. Call them to arrange the collection

    Collected from me at home too. Just phone them

    i haven't a clue to be honest i know some people say they take a photo or mark it to know whether they got the original xbox back x x x x

    aha better late than never though ..... its a right ol pain though as its ms's fault :?

    any idea how much 60gb hdmi be worth (refurbed) ?

    You will get a box baack with a nice new date on it, mine came back early feb and it had a "service date" of 24th Dec 08 on it, so not sure if that means the 3 RRoD warranty starts from then again, hope so, lol.
    As for PS3 and GT 5, well, your call I guess, I have always been a fan of the Playstion family, but I had a 60gb PS3 for about a week, just didnt like it, my mate has one and all the games he has for it just don't intrest me, there is nothign of any note to warrant having one for me.
    I know you have to pay for Live and that the xbox is about as reliable as a Ford motor car from the 1970's, but something about it makes me like it, perhaps it is because it didnt cost me the earth for the thing in the first place I guess, if I had attained a PS3 for £22.50 about 10-11 months ago then maybe it would have been a different matter, lol.
    Any way, good luck with M$, you shoulld have it back in a couple of weeks, the free 1 month Live they send you is on a card, so you could sell it on anyway, instead of adding it to your account, but to be honest I would keep the xbox and just buy a PS3, it will be worth it in the long run.

    I got my PS3 for that game too.
    Luckily the 360 has 2 games that are arguably better than it already and they have been out for ages now.
